Where Is Liberal Rage Over Mass Shooting In New Orleans?
The location is New Orleans; home of many political footballs in the last decade. The incident was a shooting; the most (forgive me) triggering situation possible in American discourse.

Just by Hillary’s words and deeds, you can tell she subscribes | Read More »
Jihadists Aren’t The Boss of Me: The Terrible, Childish, Dangerous Thinking of the Left
The internet, and particularly the left side of it, is a never-ending source of head-scratchers, headdesks, and headaches. Among all the possible topic areas for such fails, foreign policy may be the worst and within that, global terrorism especially.

The Latest California School System Craze: Retroactive Deeming
A few months ago, I noted how California Gov. Jerry Brown had delivered an early Christmas gift to the teachers’ unions by “deeming” a bunch of kids as “graduated” despite their never having actually met the state’s graduation requirements. Basically just bypassing the state’s own education standards and saying “whatever, here’s your participation degree.” It turns out the situation is even worse than that post | Read More »

We Wish You A Merry BLANK
Every year hysterical Christians – who obviously enjoy most favored status in the United States and are therefore immune to persecution, mockery, oppression, suppression, silencing, hurt feelings, and some forms of that flesh eating bacteria – get their magic underwear (that’s Christian right?) into a bunch over imaginary and perceived slights to their precious not-so-religious money-grubbing commercial holiday – presided over by an overweight, elf-enslaving …

What Do You Get When You Cross A Liberal Feminist With A Socialist?
Hillary Clinton this weekend did something totally unsurprising. She played the female genitalia card. This is not new.

Back To The Past: Dems Still Blame A Video For Benghazi
It is fitting in this week of “Back to the Future” nostalgia that we should all get together for a little time traveling, a trip all the way back to 2012. Movies about time travel, like the concept itself, are simply fiction. But what better place for fiction than the hallowed halls of Congress, where some of the lamest stories ever told are crafted almost | Read More »
Pork. It’s What’s For Disaster.
If there is one thing conservatives know, it’s that government is great at using money efficiently and getting the job done properly, in a timely manner, and for a reasonable price. Right? But even so, let’s just examine an example here. A few years ago, the base and the beltway goons (and people like Chris Christie) got into it over disaster relief to aid the | Read More »
